My preferred consistency is more 'gel like' than watery and never oily From my experience, those are the ones that will leave you glowing and over the years I have tried dozens. I am quite fond of Dr. Gerald Imber's Skin Brightener from his Youth Corridor line. So apparently was Diane, my Skin Brightener giveaway winner, whom recently wrote to me about her experience. Diane did notice her own great results, but when they were enthusiastically confirmed by her visiting Mom, whom she had not seen for many months, she sweetly insisted she take it home with her. It is indeed a terrific serum it's also a wee mucho dinero at $95 an ounce and Diane sadly bid it adios.
I am also a Lumene fan, a Finnish company that uses exotic botanicals in its product that are amazingly effective on the skin and the wallet. I recently received a sample of their Premium Beauty Rejuvenating Instant Serum. It smells fantastic and this velvety potion left my skin as dewy and glowing as Youth Corridor's Skin Brightener. Below are the specifics about the product, but I will cut to the chase and tell you that I did a little digging and found this on line at CVS for $22.49 with free standard shipping!
PREMIUM BEAUTY Rejuvenating Instant Serum
This effective serum helps to strengthen the skin's structure and improve its suppleness. Instantly restores the skin's natural glow: your skin feels pleasant and looks smoother and more beautiful. Nourishes and protects against the effects of ageing and pigment changes.
Made in Finland, with Arctic sea buckthorn. a rare, handpicked berry which grows wild at the arctic sea coast. The beneficial effects have been known in nutrition for centuries. Due to a very short period of growth in the Arctic, the wild plants become more powerful than plants that are cultivated or grown in other areas of the world. Contains over 90% of natural ingredients. Leaves the skin feeling ultra-comfortable and looking visibly smoother, velvety and more even toned. Arctic sea buckthorn + peptides for nurtured skin: activate cell regeneration and skin functions; help to reduce appearance of wrinkles; enhance the suppleness of mature skin. Paraben-free.
So Diane, it may not be free this time, but at least it's an affordable replacement for you, for me, for Mom and my readers...who knows? Maybe even Dr. Denese.
